Hi!

 

Before this update I've used default Profile 1 and it was pretty OK, however after this update it was replaced with Work account without any notification (only notice about disabled sync).

 

Is it expected update behavior? Why there was no prompt before this action?

 

Is it possible go back to "anonymous" Profile 1 account without link to Work account?

@IllusionMH 

I have the same problem. It automatically signs in as domain\user, not as user@domain.com.
You are unable to remove the automatically created "Work" profile.

Yep, looks similar to this. However that one looks more severe since not default Profile 1 was converted to Word AD account.

While favorites etc, were moved without loss it would be great to have prompt if Windows/Work AD account should be added.
Yes of course..that shouldn't be the default behavior but rather a nasty bug..
